Gwyneth Paltrow speaks out about miscarriage that nearly killed her
Gwyneth Paltrow has revealed she nearly died following the devastating miscarriage of her third child.
The Hollywood actress, 40, disclosed details of the “really bad experience” in a candid interview with The Daily Mail.
Paltrow, who has two children, Apple, 8, and Moses, 6, with her Coldplay frontman husband Chris Martin, 36, said she would like to get pregnant again but is currently mourning her last.
“My children ask me to have a baby all the time,” she said. “And you never know, I could squeeze one more in. I am missing my third. I’m thinking about it.”
“But I had a really bad experience when I was pregnant with my third. It didn’t work out and I nearly died. So I am like, ‘Are we good here or should we go back and try again?’”
Paltrow revealed she feels “very broody” whenever she sees her friend Beyonce Knowles with her one-year-old daughter Blue Ivy. Knowles also suffered a miscarriage prior to the birth of Blue Ivy, recently spoke about the experience in HBO documentary Life is But a Dream screened last month.
In the interview Paltrow also revealed details of another life-changing health scare. In 2011 she was in the garden of her North London home when she suffered a blinding pain in her head and thought she was having a stroke.
It turned out to be a "horrible migraine" and panic attack but subsequent tests revealed Paltrow was quite unwell.
"I was a mess. I was vitamin-D deficient, I had anaemia, I had thyroid issues, my liver was congested, I had hormonal imbalances and a benign tumour on my ovary that had to be removed – I mean, it was crazy. I knew it was time for change," she said.
The changes she made to her diet and lifestyle became the basis for her second cookery book, All Good.
